Over the past several weeks and months, numerous prominent politicians along with TV stars and sports heroes have made headline news with their affairs, lies, and scandals. While the media, the fans, and the supporters cannot seem to get enough of the tawdry details of the betrayers, the spotlight is rarely on the individuals striving to re-secure their truths and rebuild their lives. The true heroes are left standing in the shadows of their betrayers.

Wednesday, December 9, 2009, on ABC’s 20/20, first lady Jenny Sanford told Barbara Walters of her betrayal by her husband, “Certainly his actions hurt me, and they caused consequences for me, but they don’t in any way take away my own self-esteem. They reflect poorly on him.” After Governor Mark Sanford clearly dismissed the first lady’s expectations for reconciliation, Jenny Sanford moved out of their home and filed for divorce. How can other victims of betrayal get to a position of strength and confidence? How is it possible to separate the betrayer’s actions from one’s sense of worth?
Breaking Through Betrayal addresses these issues and others while providing a roadmap for recovering. According to Beth Hedva, Ph.D., author of award-winning Betrayal, Trust, and Forgiveness, Holli’s book is “useful for anyone caught in self-blame, shame or repeated victimization…this empowering ‘in-control’ approach can help readers take charge, assess injury, gage healing and find excellent strategies to protect themselves from future trauma when relating to one’s betrayer.”
